Centennial state voters place a clean environment and outdoor lifestyle as the top reasons they live in the West. Public lands ties economic opportunities as the greatest draw. Residents still concerned about water; lay out clear direction for the new Congress.
Excerpt from Colorado Report:
"Water is another issue about which Coloradans are concerned. Fully 82% view the low levels of water in rivers as a serious problem facing the state. As these very issues are debated here in development of a state water plan, voters continue to maintain that conservation is key. Three-quarters (74%) side with a conservation focus over a supply focus that diverts river water to more populous areas of the state."
